The author Antony Lishak visited our school on Wednesday 13th May and signed copies of his book, STARS.
Warsaw, September 1939 - For twelve-year-old, Stefan and Marcus, the zoo is their playground. Stefan lives with his family at the zoo and has grown up with the animals and their keepers. But Marcus is Jewish, and when Nazi troops invade Warsaw their world is torn apart. At enormous risk, their fathers devise a wild scheme to protect Stefan’s family and other Jews. But boys will be boys and a rebellious act of revenge threatens to ruin everything.
Inspired by the fact that hundreds of Polish Jews found shelter in the abandoned cages and underground rooms of Warsaw Zoo, Stars is a story of brotherhood, courage and hope in the face of adversity.
